9 Ways the Car Needs to Be By the Book!

IMU BMWPeople here in Apex and the Triangle have to be good planners. On any given day we are heading across town for soccer practice, back near the house for tap or ballet, and then in the door to help with homework and other activities. October is a tough month for young and growing families!

In the busy days before the Holidays, even if you are not a calendar person by nature, it makes little sense to just go through the week without a schedule.

Here at Premier One Automotive, we know the same strategies have to happen with your vehicle, from BMW to Ford. Every car, truck, and SUV needs a plan and a schedule. Put a small notebook in the car and have access to it. When you get fuel, add the date, gallons, cost and mileage. Over the course of time, you can see how much is spent each month on gasoline. You can add every purchase with a date and time like wipers and oil changes.

According to the ASE Certified professionals with Premier One Automotive, everyone should have a maintenance check record and schedule for their BMW and other models:

  • Oil changes every three to six months, 3000 to 6000 miles.
  • Air filter every 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
  • Battery every third calendar year.
  • Coolant every 40,000 miles.
  • Plugs/ wires after 60,000 miles.
  • Brakes after 60,000 miles.
  • Shocks after 80,000 miles.
  • Timing belt at 60,000 miles.
  • Cabin filter every 18 months

Remember, the above information is meant as a general guide for motorists in Apex, Cary and the Triangle. And we are for the Triangle when you need us.
